Accurate overdriving is a major step forward in LED lighting control; equally it is important to ensure that the lighting can never be overdriven outside of permissible current ratings. Gardasoft solves this problem: When a light is connected, the SafeSense technology runs a rapid routine that determines the actual rating of the light. SafeSense imposes safe working limits based on the pulse width and duty cycle for overdriving, thus providing full protection. In constant mode, the maximum output current allowed would be the maximum rating defined by SafeSense.
SafeSense works by using the following techniques:
- Sensing when a light is connected
- Finding the current rating of the light
- Driving the light within safe limits
- Detecting faults
